Apostle Grace Lubega
Ephesians 3:16 (KJV); That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man;
I have interacted with Christians who narrate dream upon dream of the devil in pursuit of them. They dreamt when a cow was chasing them; a lion was on their tails or a dog ran them down.
Some awaken in fear and trembling at the possible implications of such dreams. Then starts the drama as their imaginations develop wings and fly. Were they about to die? Who in the family was bewitching them? What did the devil want with them?
The state of your spirit determines how you respond to such meddling by the devil.
Years ago, I had a similar dream where some strange creature was in hot pursuit of me. All of a sudden, I turned on my heels and started to chase it. In the blink of an eye, the hunter became the hunted. When I cornered it, a hoe appeared in my hands and I struck off its head!
My spirit was fortified enough that even in sleep, I had the power to counter attack. Why should you awaken from a dream gasping for breath and air because the enemy tried to strangle you?
No, he should understand that even in that realm, you are alert, strong and ready to show him that you are made of sterner stuff.
Your spirit must be fortified! Make it a point to build your inner strength. When the enemy attempts to fight you, he must be put on notice that you will always fight harder!

GOLDEN NUGGET: Your spirit must be fortified! Make it a point to build your inner strength. When the enemy attempts to fight you, he must be put on notice that you will always fight harder!
PRAYER: Father, I thank You! I am a strong spirit! The devil knows who I am because I know who I am. I can never be intimidated by any attacks from the enemy. When he toughens, I toughen. When he strikes, I strike back. My spirit is fortified to withstand anything the devil and this world throws at me, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
